    Thanks  - Ill add that to my list of questions for the coordinator!

      I think it all depends on personal preferences. I went in 3rd week of March to JA and it was too chilly for my liking. The wind was probably the most annoying part of my stay there. I'd take the heat any day over consistant chilly winds. To me vacation = heat + tan :o) I'd rather stay in the ocean or pool if its unbearable than cover up with a jacket or towel. I wouldnt worry too much about it being too hot.

My brother won't go down to the carribbeans unless its a constant 30+ cause otherwise it's not a real vacation for him. I prefer a 26-29 temperature which you'll get in the late/winter early/spring, and even on the nice days in the Winter.

        I would ask your travel agent!  I wanted to do the Bahamas in January and she said it was a little too chilly!!   Hopefully they can help with your decision!!  A side note:  January ended up being REALLY expensive because it's a high travel month! :(

          JA143 -- I believe you mentioned in another thread that you were planning on the Riu Negril?? if so, they do have a back-up location incase of rain. it's really nice actually. I believe I have a pic of that area too if you want. Just let me know. :)

                Yes yes cute sun dresses and bathing suits! I think whatever date you choose that's not dead in the summer will be great :) 

                The one time we went in August, I think I didn't even get a little tan because being under the sun was just torture lol. If we were outside, we looked for any bit of shade available and just hid there until it was time to go back inside.

                    I think anytime is nice to visit the islands, but it's especially nice when it's snowing back home and you're relaxing on the beach in the sun!!  :)
